New Assembly Speaker not ready to talk tax increases
The new speaker of the Wisconsin Assembly says he isn't ready for any talk of a sales or income tax increase.
"It's way farther down the road than I'm prepared to go," said Rep. Mike Sheridan, D-Janesville.
He was chosen Wednesday to lead the lower house after his party took back the majority in last week's elections.
Gov. Jim Doyle said this week that the next two-year budget will have a record deficit of more than $5 billion.
